Thinner line, less pressure from the flow. Seemed logical to me at the time.
Perfectly logical, basically the same reason braid is now used for most sea fishing 👍🏻

I do tend to use 5-6lb line for river feeder fishing though but purely to be able to pull the feeder out of weed and to avoid crack offs on the cast when stepping up to bigger feeders. On a weed free small river if there was one near me I’d probably use 3lb like I do for float fishing.

Maxima is still a fantastic and versatile mono for reel and hook lengths. Ok, when I say hook lengths I’m not talking 0.075 canal hook lengths, no, I’m talking about where you may encounter rocks, boulders and other types of snags. Maxima is extremely abrasive resilient and if like I do you fish the tidal Trent two or three times a week for Barbel then you’ll realise that having an abrasive resistant hook length is worth its weight in gold.
